Moore's Law: Is the search for more processing power holding back tech?

Mike & Amit Talk Tech

In 1965, the American engineer Gordon Moore came up with a novel idea: that the number of semiconductors that you could fit on a silicon chip would double exponentially. It was an idea that seemed revolutionary, perhaps even a little foolhardy. But it turned out to be true.

Today, all modern technology, from autonomous cars to smartphones, is built on this massive increase in processing power. As the co-founder of the chipmaker Intel, Moore laid the foundations for much of the technology we know and rely on.

Moore died earlier this year at the age of 94, and in episode 4 of Mike and Amit Talk Tech, these two award-winning professors, discuss his legacy and the chicken-and-egg question of tech. Did Moore predict the future? Or was his prediction the key to unlocking it?
